COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winner of the First Olde Hickory Pro Am competition. Very limited production. Our brew master says: 71lbs of high alpha hops were used to make this limited production beer of only 13 barrels. That’s just over 20 grams of hops used for each pint! DBH was brewed with 2 row barley, Carapils and Crisp Crystal 45 malts and fermented to 7% alc/vol. DBH was hopped with 5 different West Coast hops: Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade. Additionally, DBH was twice dry hopped with different combinations of these hops. The net result is an amazing aroma of ripe juicy fruit mixed in with a bouquet of spring flowers. DBH was brewed to a level of bitterness of 108 IBU’s, and leaves a lingering bitterness; it is, after all, a Double IPA!

Strong floral aroma. Citrus flavor that lingers on the tongue for quite some time. This beer would be perfect if it were a bit clearer.

Loads of citrus and a bit of sweetness on the nose. The taste is tropical fruit and caramel. Nicely balanced.

Straight from the kegerator and rerated via bomber. This is what an IPA should be. Tons of sweet, juicy hops that are perfectly balanced by a clean malt base. When fresh, this is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. It’ll be on tap at my house as often as possible.

Pours a golden copper with a big fluffy, rocky off white head. Nose is very spicy hops with some citrus and a lot of pine and floral goodness, but mostly just very spicy, pungent hops. Pretty awesome. Taste is so so bitter, and hardly sweet though it’s in there. Palate is not too light with an extremely lengthy finish. A big, bold, awesome IPA with just boatloads of hop character. Really amazing stuff that I hope I will be able to try again sometime. Thanks to Alex from Hops & Vines who created this beauty. A must have for any hophead.

All these comments below support my theory that this may be the best ipa on the market! Twice the taste as a lot of other ipa’s for half the price! Great one to keep stocked.
